Talk about the ultimate slap to the face. The obituary for a Kansas City Chiefs fan says the man died because of heartbreak caused by the team.
Here’s the first sentence of the obituary for Loren G. “Sam” Lickteig that appeared in the Kansas City Star on Sunday:
“Loren G. “Sam” Lickteig passed away on Nov. 14, 2012 of complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.”
This is not the first time someone’s obituary mentioned a sports team, though it’s probably the first time a franchise’s disappointment has been mentioned as the cause of death. Surely whoever wrote the obituary was just joking, but it’s still probably the strongest indictment of the 1-8 team yet.
On the bright side, at least Peyton Manning wasn’t the cause of someone’s death again.
